A certain Bugatti customer epitomises brand loyalty.
The superfan has a carefully curated collection of models, some of which are especially enviable.
Three of them hold a world record title, and they were recently reunited at their birthplace.
Many Bugatti buyers start their journey in the same place, a luxurious château in France near Molsheim, where Ettore Bugatti first started producing his iconic vehicles.
Visitors to the sprawling estate are greeted at the Château Saint-Jean and it is here, in front of this grand French castle, that new owners will see their vehicles for the first time.
Around the back is the atelier, where about 70 Bugattis are produced by hand every year.
One Bugatti customer has always dreamed of uniting a select few of his purchases right here, at their place of origin.
And his very specific dream recently came true.
The three cars he chose (because, yes, he has that many Bugattis) each hold a world record.
Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300+
This model is the first production series car to travel at more than 300mph.
It was driven by Andy Wallace, one of the manufacturer’s test drivers.
Eager to meet the owner of his record-breaking vehicle, Wallace especially travelled to Molsheim for the reunion.
Veyron 16.4 Super Sport
Back in June 2010, this Veyron set the record for the fastest production car, reaching speeds of 267mph.
Only 30 of these models were ever produced, making this purchase an extra valuable one.
The driver who set the record, Pierre-Henri Raphanel, also came through to meet the collector.
Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse
The third car to make the pilgrimage back to France was the customer’s Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse.
This was another limited run, with only 92 being produced.
Travelling 254mph with the roof down, this Veyron is the world’s fastest open-top car.
To commemorate the special occasion, all three cars were signed by Achim Anscheidt, Bugatti’s design director.
Each note read ‘in record-breaking friendship’.
